Software RAM disks are no problem for us. We are using a special version
of qmail that uses two queues:

The 1st queue only holds mails that can be delivered at the frist time.
This queue resides on the software RAM disk. All other mails will be
automatically moved to the 2nd queue that resides on a standard disk.
This is a compromise between safety and performance.
